    I love StumbleUpon but when I submit links there nothing happens, at all. I don't know if I am banned or what is going on but I can't get any traffic from there at all.

    Do you guys have any advice?

    I get a whole lot of nothing from there either, despite having 2 accounts and asking friends to stumble things for me.

    Same here. I used to get a ton of traffic from stumble, but now it's only 20 to 30 uniques a day.

    Use to drive a ton of traffic to my sites, all whitehat. Usually a few thousand over 1 to 1.5 hours, then end. Have not seen anything close to that in several months.

    I think the issue is that there's just way too many sites on Stumble Upon these days. No one is getting much traffic from it anymore because the traffic is being divided up between too many sites. I get around 100 hits per month from Stumble Upon on one of my sites, but that's about it.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. Stumble Upon traffic isn't particularly good. People usually only spend about 10 seconds on your site and the conversion rates that you'll get will be really low.

    Yeah, when I submit a link, I only get 10 views from bots...

    I have an old site that receives 10-20k stumbleupon traffic a day. The site was submitted to stumbleupon years ago, haven't touched it since, stumbleupon just seems to like it :). However stumbleupon traffic converts REALLY badly.
